The biggest missed opportunity in Gotham is killing Jerome instead of throwing them both into the vat and having only one crawl out. The "Who's lying about how their feud started" was a fine start to "multiple choice past" but it kind of stopped mattering when Jerome got killed so soon after Jeremiah was introduced and then Jeremiah immediately abandoned the innocent act. Imagine Jeremiah kept throwing people under the bus to avoid Jerome, but kept revealing this weird cruel streak, especially to Jerome. Jerome keeps insisting Jeremiah is using Bruce, but Bruce thinks he's lying. But before any resolution can be reached, they both fall in the vat, and the one that crawls out just says his twin is dead, and now he is free, but won't say which one he is.

Reason why Bruce Wayne Cannot be Batman
During the Uptown Gotham Stadium for the Super Bowl 53, City Prince Bruce Wayne was seen being interviewed while enjoying a day out with his children.
However things quickly soured when an intoxicated fan, later to be revealed as a resident of Star City, rushed over and tackled Wayne's youngest, Damian Wayne.
At this moment an alarmed Bruce and co. Tried reasoning with the woman but, it had no effect as she did not jabe complete control of her mental faculties. Enough was enough and seeing her hold on his son tighten and the increasing discomfort of tje situation rise, Wayne took matters into his own hands and boy did he ever.
Bruce Wayne, CEO playboy extraordinaire and philanthropist, wrapped one arm around her waist and the other unhooked her arm from the younger Wayne's neck and hurled her over the next row. An incredible feat.
Wayne then spent the rest of the interview comforting his son and asking every few minutes how he felt and of he wanted to go home. The younger simply stated he was fine and that "such a thing would hardly be enough to harm me", such a brave boy.
The final question that closed this interview was really a surprise and a zinger.
Interviewer: "Mr.Wayne there have been many allegations about you backing the vigilante, Batman. Many chalk this up to you being lovers but there are some who state that your lobe for justice is the root cause.
A popular theory goes as far as to say that your yourself are the man behind the cowl. What say you?
Bruce: I would like to reassure the good citizens that no, I am not involved in an affair with a bat vigilante in my city. That would place myself and my children in more danger than normal.
Furthermore, Batman does not kill, not under any circumstances. But touch any one of my children and you will be dead where you stand. I may not be the Bat but, I am a father. Take that as you will."
Incredible. The power of familial bonds and a man who would move heaven and Earth for his kids. If that doesn't spell love and determination, I don't know what will.
We can all agree that he may not be Batman but he is a father.
And that may be more frightening than a masked hero who can break your bones twenty-one ways to Sunday.

The perfect Batman trilogy
A perfect Batman trilogy would be a father/son story with Bruce and Jason Todd. The first movie is mainly Batman but Jason provides a mirror to Bruce and his journey. You can show Bruce remembering his life when seeing Jason and his daily life. We could see how people in Gotham truly live. Batman can truly become a hero of the people, starting by saving this boy.
The second movie should be a full Batman and Robin movie. A beautiful adventure with many emotional moments between the two. Show their relationship warts and all. A broken man trying to be a father and a son who doesn't know how to be loved.
This all culminates in the second movie ending with the Death of Jason Todd. End the movie with Batman basically giving up the cowl after Jason dies.
Third movie would be basically an adaptation of Under the Red Hood. Just an emotionally charged and tragic story. A father and son fighting till the end. Have it truly be a harrowing experience for Bruce almost breaking him. But end with a hopeful finish. Both Jason and Bruce putting their differences aside and fighting for the soul of Gotham.
Have the third movie end the same way the first one started, a lonely broken man sharing a meal with a lost boy.
